MEP Hanger & Support Distribution in Revit®: BIM Software for Fast, Accurate Layouts
MEP Hangers enables the instant large-scale insertion of hangers and supports for ducts, pipes, cable trays, and conduits throughout a Revit® model. Thanks to BIM-to-Field features, you get accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings and accurate on-site assembly.
Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2023, 2022, 2021
The software uses simple yet highly flexible rules to select the relevant Revit MEP systems and add (or modify) needed hangers or supports with their various connections. They can be distributed as a fixed number per segment or based on the distance between bearing points.
MEP Hangers can split ducts, pipes, cable trays, and conduits into predefined lengths as needed and mark all service components for fabrication. For on-site precision and efficiency, it exports bearing points to Trimble or TopCon tools and drilling robots.
When the time comes to distribute hangers and supports in your project, save hours of painstaking manual work. Let MEP Hangers do it for you!

"The MEP Hangers add-in is a fantastic set of tools. We use it on our MEP modeling projects. If you need to model hangers, this is the Revit add-in we recommend." (July 2020)
Building Information Modeler / Plumbing Designer at PACE Collaborative, USA
"Our company utilizes both Smart Sheets & MEP Hangers heavily. MEP Hangers has saved us countless hours placing hangers on piping & ductwork. There is a small learning curve, but AGACAD was there to help explain & make recommendations based on our company’s needs. Smart Sheets has been a great time saver when working on larger projects with many floors or areas. For example, a large hotel complex. We would recommend these products to any company that places hangers or works with larger scale projects."

"We are very pleased with the MEP Hangers software and customer service at AGACAD. Benefits that we've noticed using MEP Hangers are:
- Easy installation
- Great time saver, especially on undulating/sloped ceilings and where there are many changes in ceiling levels
- Fairly straight forward/user friendly to navigate and modify hangers and supports
- Very easy to Model
- Plenty of options/parameters to automatically distribute hangers under various structural, practical and aesthetic conditions
- Ability to calculate Hanger Elevation from Level from software automatically
- Automatically update with changes in the model"
